Dopamine 2 Receptor Genes Are Associated with Raised Blood Glucose in Schizophrenia

CONCLUSIONS: These findings support the involvement of DRD2 not only in schizophrenia but also in elevated levels of blood glucose commonly found in antipsychotic-treated patients with schizophrenia. Our data support the notion that diabetes may not merely be a comorbid condition but could be fundamentally associated with the pathogenesis of schizophrenia itself.

very interesting… my boyfriend is now on diabetic medication, lots good meds though

I check my glucose levels sometimes when I have blurred vision or angry issues, it’s been normal for years though.
I might have high blood pressure though, like my dad.

When I was off meds, my blood sugar was normal. Once on abilify it shot through the roof , and I had to go on metformin it was so bad. I doubt vitamin D would have made any difference.
